The Yang-Metal day master is mounted on the Rat. Idris Elba's universal energy is Death.
Idris Elba is marked by a radiant, brilliant appearance but who is not as balanced internally as it seems to the outside world. He tends to make fantastic plans that turn out to be duds in the end while at the same time he devotedly attempts to build up the foundation for a secure livelihood. When Idris Elba manages to overcome his internal contradictions, he won't belie his radiant appearance. As highly skilled mediator, as a steady personality, Idris Elba will gain the full respect of his fellow men and take on a special position amongst them.
Idris Elba is kind-hearted and charming but also goal-oriented and ambitious. Full of energy, he puts into reality what he intends to and that sometimes regardless of the consequences. A sense of tact is not necessarily one of Idris Elba's best features. Thereby, he absolutely has ideals. One of them is the fulfilment of obligations. Therefore, you should not criticise him too often and also withhold good advice. He knows everything better anyway.
Idris Elba possesses a lot of energy, is impatient and ambitious and usually creates his own problems while maintaining a high drive to become successful. While following goals he can be very focused and selfish. Acting aggressively, emotionally, intuitively and secretively, he listens to an inner voice no matter whether it is right or wrong. Feelings and problems are not communicated, but Idris Elba is able to motivate others and lead them to success.
Idris Elba has a tendency to be sad. Justice, truth, ruefulness and yearning define his life. He loves company, is active, future-oriented, sensitive and mentally interested. Blows of fate hit him hard. He is solid, not very chargeable, reliable, honourable and sometimes even superficial.
Idris Elba's creativity and excitement for new trends are not instantly recognisable and he is sometimes perceived as a riddle since his ideas and motives are not comprehended by others. Idris Elba is generous and intelligent but can also be tactless and startling without him wanting to be.
Idris Elba is courageous, says what he thinks and possesses a sense of quality and care towards his family. He deals very consciously with money which can create problems at times.
Forget all about the Chinese Year sign you are born in. It doesn't say much about you. Chinese astrology is much more complex!
The following table lists the heavenly stems and earth branches of Idris Elba's BAZI chart at his birth. The day master (DM), first row of the day pillar, is the self-element. It represents the me, the key from which all stems and branches receive their strength. That makes Idris Elba a Yang Metal autumn person. Metal is prosperous in autumn.
However, the day master's strength can differ from the element's season strength. The reason is the interactions of the stems and earth branches with each other. Depending on the season and type of element interaction the elements can further, control or harm each other. They can also clash.
To make those element interactions graspable, there are 10 gods; 7 Killings (7K), Direct Officer (DO), Indirect Wealth (IW), Direct Wealth (DW), Indirect Resource (IR), Direct Resource (DR), Friend (F), Rob Wealth (RW), Eating God (EG) and Hurting Officer (HO).
I'm working on a Chinese Metaphysics blog which is not online yet. In the future all of the above will be explained into depth, so you will be able to understand the meanings. For now, you find the gods for Idris Elba listed in the respective table cells.
